User should be able to override SSL certificate warnings

  1. My blog is secured with cacert free SSL certificates. These are perfectly valid, but aren't signed by a recognised CA's root certificate.

    The iPhone Mail application also prompts to say there's a potential bad cert, but allows the user to choose "Continue" and then doesn't ask again - it just silently accepts the certificate and continues.

    The WordPress app should be more lenient when dealing with certificate errors - certainly warn the user, but do give them the option to continue.

    Right now, the WordPress app will not connect to my blog and so cannot be used, which is a shame :(

  2. Thanks for the suggestion srcshelton. We're looking into loosening up the restrictions on SSL certs. Stay tuned.

  3. I have a similar problem. I have two different domains hosted within the same shared hosting account. However, I can only have one dedicated IP and SSL cert for the whole account. So the primary domain validates against the certificate, but the add-on domain doesn't because the hostname is wrong. I'd love to be able to accept the certificate anyway.

    If I grabbed the code from SVN and worked on this myself, how do I go about submitting a patch for possible use in the official app?

  4. Hi Guys,

    I have the same problem.

    I have a self-signed SSL certificate and force logins to SSL. The Wordpress app fails to add my blog and I'm stuck.


  5. I am in the same boat and would very much like to be able to accept my self-signed certificate.
